About what should I be making for boost???

Just recently put a full banks power pack on the truck, '02 dually that gets used to tow heavy almost exclusively. With the skid steer and mulcher on the trailer and with a nice hill to climb we are seeing about 25lbs of boost. The power pack kit included a new intercooler. full four inch exhaust, 1.0 a/r turbine housing, compressor wheel, wastegate, downpipe and 100 hp chip.

Does this seem about right for the truck??

I know that there are different opinions on banks products for every diesel truck out there but the fit and finish of the products were awesome. In addition every time I hook the truck up to something I try to peg the egt gauge and it simply CAN NOT be done. There are combinations of parts that make more power for a lot less money but this kit is absolutely idiot proof, especially for a truck that is used by multiple drivers.

anyways, what do ya'll think???

Really depends on the tuning. Each of my tunes make different boost numbers ranging from 10-30. No wastate on mine and TW tunes.

Mods
turbo back exhaust, EGR delete, GPS, DVD, MP3

For now.............................

Sounds like the most I'd run through the stock turbo.

25 PSI is good.
